Car­di­nals 8, Na­tion­als 5

HIGH­EST WIN EX­PECTANCY 82 per­cent

The Washington Post Sunday - - SPORTS -

Syn­op­sis: This was the first in a week of bullpen melt­downs. Nurs­ing a two-run lead, Casey Janssen got in a jam but had two outs. Twice he had two strikes on the po­ten­tial fi­nal out and couldn’t put the bat­ters away. Stephen Pis­cotty smacked an RBI sin­gle, and then Jhonny Peralta did the same. Drew Storen was un­avail­able be­cause of his work­load, so Felipe Rivero re­lieved Janssen and gave up a go-ahead two-run dou­ble to Jason Hey­ward and an RBI sin­gle to Kolten Wong. The Na­tion­als had the ty­ing run at the plate in the ninth against Trevor Rosen­thal, but An­thony Ren­don ran into an out, Ryan Zim­mer­man popped out and Clint Robin­son struck out.
